Stuff 6: Coffee Table and Yoga Class too…

160329company2HH here. Yes, I’m still at it.  I bet you thought I would find an excuse to abandon my de-stuffing project by now.  Nope… I’m in it for the long haul.  Today, I’ll show you the results of my attack on the coffee table.

First of all, let me tell you I’ve just sorta been winging this and everyday deciding what I’ll do next.  Yesterday, I decided to take some time to make a tentative plan. So, I decided that the first order of business throughout the condo is to clear all surfaces.  Oh, don’t get me wrong. I want to and will go deep into all the nooks and crannies of the condo eventually, but what is bothering me most at this point is the STUFF on counters, tables, chairs, etc. So… I am going to go from surface to surface and clear all surfaces first.  Today, the coffee table.

I love this coffee table… I bought it mainly because it is so large and has the potential to be one huge open surface with a nice clean soothing look of uncluttered bliss.  Ha! That description might be going a bit too far. But for the longest time, I’ve wanted to clear it off once and for all. As a writer/artist, my projects tend to pile up in front of wherever I sit.

THEREFORE… the coffee table usually looks like this:

I have determined that there is no reason I can’t work on projects from the coffee table when I find that convenient; BUT, the new de-stuffed rule is to put things away at the end of the day, so when I walk into the living room in the morning: No clutter in sight….

AND… here’s what I mean:

Better, right?

I still have to address the items under the coffee table (there are three baskets filled with paperwork and you can see the drawing paper on the floor). But the top is a crucial accomplishment.  Bugsy was so confused by the uncluttered surface: he jumped on it and slid off the other side onto the floor.

While I was de-stuffing the coffee table, Bugsy and Knuckles were doing their Yoga Class and snapping pictures for the Sunday Selfie Blog Hop put on by The Cat On My Head blog.  Please join in…

Here they are in Yoga Class…

We hope you have a great day.

hugs, HH, Bugsy and Knuckles

    I think yoga is a lot more fun than decluttering!

  2. hannahandlucy says:

    We leave that decluttering thing to our Mum – we really like to keep her occupied!

  3. meowmeowmans says:

    Awesome job, HH! The coffee table looks fabulous.

    And so do Bugsy and Knuckles … great yoga moves, guys!

    Great yoga, Bugsy and Knuckles! My mum is always decluttering, but then my dad comes along with a load of his junk and clutters everything up again. Mum threatens to throw it out for the bin men.

  5. I think you need a yoga session before and after the makeover..MOL 😀 Pawkisses for a Sunny Day 🙂 ❤

    Those are some pretty great yoga moves. Thanks for sharing those with us Bugsy ad Knuckles. Lou, please let me know how long the clean coffee table lasts. I try to clean off surfaces all the time, and swear I am never going to clutter them up again, and the clean version only lasts a few days at most. How funny that Bugsy slid right off the table. Reminds me of Astrid who likes to leap onto the kitchen island and clear it of all items as she slides across. Thanks for hopping again this week. Continued good luck with your project.

  10. Hi! You are doing way better than my peep is, at decluttering. We just move from room to room or pile to pile! Happy Selfie Sunday, and love the yoga stretches. purrs ERin

    Love the kitty yoga. I wonder what that pose is called. Upward-facing toes?
